While Waugh does not expect that he will make a decision at any point in the near future the Cards have to feel good about their chances with the 6-foot, 165-pound wide receiver.

"I'm pretty interested in them," Waugh explained. "A friend of my family went there and played basketball there. He said it was pretty fun."

Waugh is referring to Nate Johnson, who played basketball for the Cardinals under head coach Denny Crum from 1996-2000.

He has been in contact with Nebraska, Boston College, Virginia, Cincinnati, Maryland, Pittsburgh and Missouri. Waugh doesn't know what his schedule will look like for the next few months, but he already knows that he has one difficult decision ahead of him.
